Can't understand love through fear,
And life without the blessing
Of my birthright

So from thy heavens, built of mothers
who can't feed their own sons
I'll fall again... to drown in ecstasy...

Into this burning place
Stage of anxious flesh
Innocence and disgrace... are alive

My child releases my hand
And wondered, he runs to the sweet fountain
Quenching his thirst,
Pure child

Nailed to a well learned ignorance,
You cannot touch paradise

Your child releases your hand
And faraway he runs from the sweet fountain
Ashamed of himself,
Poor child

Living your life in this maze
Like an echo or a slave

Inside your soul you refuse to see
Misery is disguised as salvation

Omnipotent sadism, life and death in fear
... And thou shall obey

Omnipresent voyeurism, extinct privacy
... And thou shall obey

Omniscient tyranny, the bonfire of all dreams
... And thou shall obey
